Description

As consumers and citizens of modern society, we are inundated with images, information, and data that lead to confusing messages and an overload of content. Much of this information is forgotten or discarded immediately due to the inability to retain the significant amount we receive in our daily activities. However, there are certain elements in design that can aid in understanding, processing, and retaining data while disseminating information due to neurological activities and connections. Some of these elements include size, color, proximity, and movement, amongst other important graphic design elements. Infographics utilize these elements and create an incredible tool to facilitate better communication within the world of design and information.
